John MacGinnis's research revolves primarily around Mesopotamian civilisation of the first millennium BC. He is interested in work which seeks to integrate the evidence of both archaeology and epigraphy for the Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian and Achaemenid empires. For many years he has worked on the Neo-Babylonian/Achaemenid archives of the Ebabbara, the temple of the sun god Shamash in Sippar (south of modern Baghdad) and has published extensively in this field. For over a decade he has also been leading the British contribution to the international mission working at the site of Ziyaret Tepe in southeastern Turkey, now identified as the Neo-Assyrian provincial capital of Tushan, where he is both project epigrapher and directs excavations in the lower town.
